PADI IDC Phuket December 2022 – Rob Seavey

Looking For The Best IDC in Phuket, Thailand?

If you are looking for a place in Phuket, Thailand to complete your PADI IDC (instructor development course), look no further. Darren, is both the owner of Aussie Divers Phuket – PADI 5 Star IDC and the in-house PADI Course Director. He has a million stories, and the classes are always entertaining. He is basically the PADI poster child, so if you want to learn “the PADI way” and why they do things the way they do, he is a walking PADI encyclopedia.

What sets Darren apart, however, is that he CARES about you and your future in the industry. I nearly walked away from training due to some personal issues mid-course. Darren professionally took me to the side and, rather than giving me a talking to, offered advice on both a personal and professional level. The words that stuck with me were, “I want to see you finish what you started!”

Darren will be there on the day of your PADI Instructor Exam (PADI IE). Let’s be honest, the PADI grading system is a bit subjective. Have you ever walked away from a critique thinking, “That was a bit nit-picky?” Well, you won’t have to keep that opinion to yourself, because Darren will be the one saying it for you! Haha! He’s a great guy with a good mind for business and a soft heart.

The rest of the Aussie Divers Phuket staff are also amazing! Ash (PADI Master Instructor) could easily own his own shop, but he puts in extra effort and hours to keep everyone happy! Guy, Martin, Franc, and Chris are all wonderful PADI instructors and guides, and those are just the ones I got to work with. To be honest, Darren only hires the best talent, so whomever you get as your guide or instructor, rest assured you’re in excellent hands!

If you’re looking to do your PADI IDC in Thailand then I would definitely recommend doing your PADI IDC in Phuket with Aussie Divers! Darren and the rest of the Aussie Divers Phuket staff will make it feel like a walk in the park (with an old friend)!
